I'm trying to set up a right triangle with the vectors and using the tip to tail method, but I'm not getting anywhere. Could anyone try to do the problem and explain it? Thanks.

Without the wind, a plane would fly due east at a rate of 150 mph. The wind is blowing southeast at a rate of 50 mph. The wind is blowing at a 45° angle from due east. How far off of the due east path does the wind blow the plane?
